Our story started in a little town in the Pacific Northwest called Bellingham. Here a passionate cyclist, frame builder, bike shop owner named Paul Barkley, began the journey that would see the idea of bike comfort forever changed.
While serving his first tour in the Peace Corp in Uganda, Paul experienced very rough roads riding his bike between villages. On his return, he began to develop a way to smooth out the ride that would work with different bikes. He took his protype to Uganda for his second tour and the idea of our Kinekt Isolation seatpost was born. he idea worked so well, he felt this could help a lot of cyclists who found cycling not comfortable or fun due to the amount of vibration generated by un-even terrain and surfaces.
After years of development and testing, Cirrus Cycles, Inc was founded in 2010, with our seatpost being issued a patent in 2014. Now in our 12th year and having sold tens of thousands of our award winning Kinekt Active suspension seatpost, along with adding our new Active suspension Stem in 2020, we are still passionate about developing products that help provide more comfort and greater safety when cycling. In 2020, Cirrus moved to a new facility that will allow to meet the growing demand of Kinekt products. We also have expanded our staff to meet those needs with over 20 passionate employees! We are proud to be able to become a valued employer in Whatcom County and become one of the growing cycling brands to make it’s home here. All Kinekt products are assembled and tested right here in the USA. The official European distributor for all Kinekt products is Pilot Trading. At Kinekt we want to see a world on bikes and are proud to do our part for a healthier planet and for healthier lifestyles.
It’s why at Kinekt they say, Comfort in Motion™!
